As previously announced:
Produced by Robyn Goodman, Scott M. Delman and Amanda Lipitz, THE PERFORMERS, David West Read's new romantic comedy, will begin preview performances on Tuesday, October 23, 2013 - prior to its official opening night on Wednesday, November 14th - at the Longacre Theatre (220 W. 48 St.) in New York City.
THE PERFORMERS stars Cheyenne Jackson, Ari Graynor, Daniel Breaker and Jenni Barber, and also stars Alicia Silverstone and Henry Winkler. THE PERFORMERS will be directed by Evan Cabnet (WARRIOR CLASS, ALL-AMERICAN), who also directed Mr. Read's play THE DREAM OF THE BURNING BOY, a critical and popular hit when it debuted in March 2011 at Roundabout Theatre's Underground Series, produced by Robyn Goodman.
THE PERFORMERS is a romantic comedy set on the night of the Adult Film Awards. Lee (Mr. Breaker), a tabloid journalist, has come to Las Vegas to interview his high school friend, Mandrew (MR. Jackson), a hot new adult film star. Lee, who's accompanied by his fiancée, Sara (Ms. Silverstone), first sees Mandrew as an exotic creature; but soon enough begins to question his own, more conservative lifestyle. Meanwhile, Sara is having doubts too, and she enlists Mandrew's wife, Peeps (Ms. Graynor) -- also an adult film star -- to compare notes on intimacy and the fear of commitment. Awards, sequins, and Barry Manilow converge as everyone tries to navigate the ins, outs, ups and downs of relationships. Thank goodness Chuck Wood (Mr. Winkler), the hardest-working man in the business, is on hand to remind everyone that size matters . . . but love matters more.
THE PERFORMERS is Mr. Read's first play on Broadway, and also marks the Broadway directing debut for Mr. Cabnet.
THE PERFORMERS will have set design by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, costume design by Jessica Wegener Shay, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, and original music by Julian Fleisher.
